Character inoperable when performing a lobby action in the Panis Repca outfit

  • During our investigation, we have confirmed a bug where you may not be able to operate your character when performing the “Mimic” lobby action in the Panis Repca outfit. As a workaround for this bug, open the main menu and select a different outfit.

Phantasy Star Online 2 Goes ‘Extreme’ With Extreme Quests

Did you know this update is no longer called “Phantasmal Tower”? Oh well!

 

Extreme Quests

Extreme Quests

Extreme Quests are VR simulations intended for advanced players to test their skills under harsh situations. Extreme Quests are available at level 50+ compromising of enemies starting from level 60+. Extreme quests feature a combination of bosses and enemies that won’t normally appear together in other quests.

 

Extreme Quests 2

In order for players to challenge this quest, they’ll need an Extreme Pass. Every 22 hours, you can receive 1 Extreme Pass at the Quest Counter. Extreme Quests are set up in 5 stage increments. Initially 40 stages will be available upon release, but they plan to add more stages in the future.

 

Stage Orders

There are technical conditions to each stage called “Stage Orders”  allowing players to attempt various challenges.  For example, by “defeating the designated enemy within the time limit” makes the next stage slightly easier and raises the number of items you can bring back with you once the quest is cleared.

 

Virtual Items

Items are stored in a “virtual state” and you can retrieve them once the quest is cleared. However, the number of items you can take with you is based upon the quest clear results. Only here can you receive brand new 11 star weapons and units. Even if a rare item did not drop for you, you’ll eventually be able to obtain one if you keep clearing the quests.

 

Limited Time Event

Mr Umblla E Quest

May 15th through June 12th

A high chance of showers are expected in the new forest Emergency Quest  titled “With Rain and Wind.” In this quest, you’ll have a much easier time encountering the mysterious Mr. Umblla.  Other bosses like Fang Banther and Chrome Dragon can also appear as well.

 

Frog Rappy

フログ・ラッピー Frog Rappy

 

Bubbrappy gun

バブラッピーガン BubRappy Gun

During this time, the Frog Rappy will drop the BubRappy Twin Machine Gun. And of course, Xie will be back giving out client orders for a limited time.

 

Team Features Expanded

Team Room Forest

森林拠点 Forest Base

Put your athletic skills to the test in the new Forest Team Room Base. Players can jump from stump to stump, carefully traverse the narrow bridge, and slide down a water slide to find meseta and items placed in various locations around the base.

 

Butler Team NPC

Lillipan Suit Team NPC

Choose from a new selection of NPCs for your team room with more refined characters like the butler or maid, or take the comical route with NPCs in the Rappy or Lillipan suit.

 

Mag Level Cap

Mag Level Cap 175

Now you can level up your mag to level 175.

 

Multiple Emergency Quests

In this update, several emergency quests in the same region have a chance to show up at the same time. For example, if the announcement is for city areas, the “City Mop-Up,” “City Recapture,” and Falz Hunar emergency quest can now appear at the same time.
